Python Basics Challenge Task 4 of 4 Great! Finally, make a variable named greeting where you join greeting_list back int

I'm stuck on Challenge four of the list section! The question is:

Great! Finally, make a variable named greeting where you join greeting_list back into a string, separated by spaces. You should end up with "Hi, I'm <your first name>" as the value of greeting.

This is my code so far

full_name = "Anthony Boardman"
name_list = full_name.split()
greeting_list = "Hi, I'm {}".format(full_name).split()

My head is in the bin!! I can't figure this out

You've put your full name into the greeting. For the last step, you need to turn the list in greeting_list back into a string.

I know this a month old, but incase other people come across this question needing help.

Make sure you use .join() to turn list back into a string.
